DONUM CORDE

Our story

The Donum Corde is a private facility built in the clearing of Sandomierz Forest. Location in the protected nature area ensures a soothing silence and clean air, saturated with the scent of the forest, allowing you to breathe fully. This will make our residents feel good and safe, while walking among the park alleys. We offer air-conditioned single or double apartments with a comfortable bathroom and a terrace.

Joint activities will enable building bonds between seniors, and rehabilitation treatments and therapies will allow them to enjoy good condition.

We are the most modern rehabilitation center in south-eastern Poland, equipped with technologies supporting the recovery process. We have devices such as an exoskeleton, a stationary gait re-education robot, a device for focused vibration therapy, devices facilitating the rehabilitation of the upper limbs, as well as a medical bed with a walking function.

Our Rehabilitation Center is located 19 km from Rzeszów and is surrounded by magnificent forests, what enables full regeneration under propitious conditions. An additional advantage is the possibility of rehabilitation in water.

COMPREHENSIVE AND ATTRACTIVE

Our offer

THE HIGHEST STANDARD

Care

The residents of the “Donum Corde” Retirement Home may be people with various degrees of self dependence and type of the underlying disease, who require an appropriate diet. A contraindication to staying in our Home is acute cancer, mental illness and the apalic state.

The Donum Corde complex was built without architectural barriers, with wide corridors and stairs, spacious rooms and a lift.

FREE TIME?

Make every day more interesting

We want each of our residents to feel the best here and that is why we offer a number of ways to spend free time. Inmates can actively spend their time playing various kinds of games or just chatting with others. We provide a space conducive to integration. A spacious dining room and specially prepared places will allow you to organize meetings or lectures.

STYLISH AND CAMERAL

Library

A place where you can sink into a comfortable armchair with an interesting book and a cup of coffee or tea allows you to relax and focus and at the same time. The wide range of available titles is constantly expanding, so that everyone can find something for themselves.

CHARMING AND FULL OF LIFE

Walking paths

Our facility was built in the special protected nature area “Sandomierz Forest”. It is a valuable refuge for divers, herons, black storks, rollers, nightjars, white-tailed eagles, ruffs and many other birds. Nearby, there is the Zabłocie reserve with breeding sites for rare species of wetland ornithofauna, natural communities of the former Sandomierz Forest with numerous rare plants. In a word, it is a paradise for nature lovers.

MODERN EQUIPPED AND COMFORTABLE

Computer room

Directly from the library, you can go to a modern computer lab. All stations have access to the Internet, so it is possible to use social media. Therefore, we enable the development of passion, training, obtaining various information or playing solitaire or chess in comfortable conditions.
